presiding over a war in afghanistan. >> and is john mccain now conceding this is all a grudge match? >> there's a lot of ill will towards senator hagel because when he was a republican, he attacked president bush mercilessly, at one point said he was the worst president since herbert hoover, said that the surge was the worst blunder sense the vietnam war, which is nonsense, and was very anti his own party and people. people don't forget that. >> the heroes of newtown. president obama pos thumously awards the medal to six people who died while rescuing the children. >> dawn hotsprung and mary serlach, vicky solo, lauren russo, rachel devino, ann marie murphy. they gave their lives to protect the precious children in their care. they gave all they had for the most innocent and helpless among us. that's who we honor today. the courageous heart, the selfless spirit, the inspiring actions of extraordinary americans. >> the triumph was no triumph. the carnival cruise ship finally reaches shore, and -- >> we didn't have water. we didn't have showers. we didn't have hot meals. >> it was lit
. and arizona senator, john mccain, who suggested the white house has a greater strategy at play. >> leaks don't happen in washington by accident. does the president really want a result or does he want anoth another -- to beat up republicans? >> the president's new chief of staff is defending this back-up plan saying the administration is only doing what it promised to do from the very beginning. >> we're doing exactly what the president said we would do last month in las vegas, which is we're preparing, we're going to be ready. let's make sure it doesn't have to be proposed. let's make sure that that group up there, the gang of eight, makes a good progress on these efforts, as much as they say they want to. >> all right. so if the leak proves anything, this president and the white house is working on an immigration reform plan. joining me is texas democratic congressman henry quayar. some saying the legislation is half-backed and seriously flawed and would make our immigration problems worse. from what you've learned about what the white house has crafted, this rough draft, what's your first
that our troops are getting the kind of strategy and mission that they deserve. >> joe, senator john mccain offered a different -- and this is -- actually, i felt better after i heard this -- he offered a different rationale for the republican opposition. it's personal. it's one that dates back to the bush presidency. >> oh, okay. >> there's a lot of ill will towards senator hagel because when he was a republican, he attacked president bush mercilessly. at one point said he was the worst president since herbert hoover, said that the surge was the worst blunder since the vietnam war, which is nonsense. and was very anti his own party and people. people don't forget that. you can disagree, but if you're disagreeable, then people don't forget that. >> oh, okay. >> you know, richard haass, for the 66,000 troops currently serving in afghanistan and for the families all across america this morning, i'm sure they're glad to know that we don't have a secretary of defense in place and we're not going to because of a seven-year-old political grudge. forget about sequestration. forget about all the cu
's going to be an interview and they expect it to go through, john mccain and others are going to vote against. we had the votes in terms of the cloture vote on friday, on wednesday, rather, in terms of having 58 votes, but now what is this whole issue of the rutgers speech? >> i think it's all about sort of desperate search to find something. usually when you are asking questions about a nominee, and i'm a really big dlooefr believer in oversight and the advisory process, but usually you have a reason to think there's someone there. this is just scouring the kitchen cabinets and seeing if you can find any little dust balls any place, and i think they are just -- you and i have seen it so many times. if you can run out the clock enough, maybe something will come up, and this is just sort of playing for that end of the football game moment of something turning up. he will be confirmed, and i have to say i don't think he performed well at all, to put it mildly, in the hearings. i also think especially this last stretch makes republicans look terrible also. >> let's look at lindsey graham
. ultimately john mccain did some straight talk yesterday. he said what this is really about. this is about -- this is personal. this is about hagel. what i find interesting, it was funny to hear john mccain say you are so anti-bush, and i wonder if there are a bunch of bush first term folks saying you remember a republican senator who used to say some anti-bush things. >> and just a quick note, chris calizza, the fact that frank -- what people expected him to do, which was to step down, he is the last world war ii veteran -- >> 89. >> 89 years old. as kelly points out. cory booker's presumptions, some some would say certainly latuenberg camp to presume that will he is -- is cory booker a shoe-in or is frank palone got some play with the democratic party, and is there really a primary? >> i think there will be a primary. i think at least initially frank palone is in the race. i think the pressure is he certainly has a certain amount of money. can he raise money against booker, who we expect will be able to raise money? i would say cory booker is prohibitive favorite maybe overstating that h
. >> coming up, john mccain's admission on why some republicans blocked chuck hagel's vote. >> there's a lot of ill will towards senator hagel because when he was a republican, he attacked president bush mercilessly. >> so is it payback? we'll have much more on what mccain had to say and when a vote might take place. plus, the latest on the near live 1,000 people injured today from a meteorite that exploded over russia and nasa is at this minute tracking an asteroid that is set to fly by earth in about five minutes. the closest to earth. about five minutes from now. join our conversation on twitter. you can find out @tamronhall and my team is at @newsnation. stop! stop! stop! come back here! humans -- we are beautifully imperfect creatures living in an imperfect world. that's why liberty mutual insurance has your back with great ideas like our optional better car replacement. if your car is totaled, we give you the money to buy one a model year newer. call... and ask one of our insurance experts about it today. hello?! we believe our customers do their best out there in the world, and we do
john mccain who heightened a few issues here the republicans have with chuck hagel. >> to be honest with you, it goes back to, there's a lot of ill-will towards senator hagel because when he was a republican, he attacked president bush mercilessly, at one point said he was the worst president since herbert hoover, said that the surge was the worst blunder since the vietnam war, which is nonsense. and was very anti-his own party and people. people don't forget that. you can disagree but if you're disagreeable, people don't forget that. >> what do you think is the gop's strategy here and is there a sense at all that they might be creating more bad p.r. for the party because hagel appears to be on his way to being confirmed anyway? you heard david saying that they're just perhaps diminishing his ability to lead to his best ability down the road by all of this. >> i think that is sort of the conundrum here. the party that's supposedly the defense party that so strongly supports the military, supposedly has been able to use that little piece of p.r. in their favor over all these election
. >> haters. >> john mccain has been in everything lately, from the benghazi debate to the nomination of chuck hagel. perhaps now a former friend to be a defense secretary. he hit both topics hard this morning on "meet the press." here he is referring to the cover up over benbenghazi. >> of what? >> of the information of concerning the deaths of four brave americans. the information has not been forthcoming. you can obviously believe that it has. i know that it hasn't and i'll be glad to send you a list of the questions that have not been answered. >> is he correct? is there a white house cover up when it comes to the white house attack? >> he sure seems to think so. i don't know why he is so you know, hell bent on trying to find more answers after we've gotten everyone who was directly involved on the record. i really am just wondering if he's just doing this to try to shore up his crede as far as being the military's voice and making sure the servicemen and women know he will fight for them every step of the way. >> it does seem like john mccain has been on the mission lately. he's going aft
, radical choices for secretary of defense in a very long time. >> meantime, senator john mccain says that hagel is not qualified, but he thinks it's time to go ahead with a vote since enough time has gone by to ask questions and now shall the white house is worried because two important nominations are going so slowly not only hagel, but john brennan to head the cia. >> between john brennan, the cia director and chuck hagel secretary of defense, we want to make sure we have them sitting in the the chairs working and i don't want something to have been missed because of the hangup in washington. >> reporter: and the vote is expected sometime after congress returns to work on february 25th, harris. >> harris: steve centanni, thank you. florida senator marco rubio talking about the white house plan for immigration reform saying quote, it's dead on arrival. as you may know, rubio was one of the republican and democrat senators who reached a break through bipartisan break through. another member of the so-called gang of 8, john mccain tweeted, headed down to southern arizona to assess bo
republicans-- including john mccain and lindsey graham-- were coming out of a meeting with republicans saying "we're satisfied in the case of john mccain and graham, request the answers we got about benghazi from the white house. we're satisfied now. but we don't think other senators have had enough time. they're not on the arms services commit tee so we'll vote to hold this up now, when we come back in ten days we'll vote yes. it's not blocking, we just want to slow down." >> warner: what were the motivations? you had reid taking it to a vote where it was predicted he would lose and republicans said yeah we'll vote for it in another ten days but not now. what are the politics here? >> on the republican side, the politics have shifted from the center of the three amigos on national security, jindsy graham john mccain and senator kelly ayotte from new hampshire. it's shifted away from them. they had questions about benghazi which had been a major political issue since before the election. those seem to be moving off the table now. there are senators on the right who are asking questions about
of republicans don't like him. don't take my word for it. that's what john mccain said on thursday, saying there's a lot of ill-will over republicans over hagel's criticism of president bush and iraq and the surge and all the rest. and as a result they're jamming them up. i don't think it ultimately keeps him from being defense secretary. but it does weaken him, as well as his own performance at his confirmation hearing, which left a lot of people disappointed as well. >> and there is some discussion that this delay might allow his opponents to have more ammunition against him. any reason to be concerned on that level? >> it's a question i will ask the president's chief of staff on the program. there are speeches some republicans did not have access to they think may certain points of view about israel damaging to hagel's chances. the view inside the white house is these are just other attempts to move the goalpost and delay him when there's recognition that he will ultimately be confirmed. >> republicans are looking a lot their image right now. are there some republicans questioning the wisdom
the who you senator john mccain talked about what he would like to see happen on "state of the union." let's listen to that. >> but i won't blame totally the president of the united states. but the president leads. he should be calling us from somewhere, camp david you wherever, and discuss the cuts. >> reporter: one thing we have been seeing the blame game, trying to make the american public feel like one party is more responsible for all the bad things that are going to happen if these cut goes through, like these long airport lines and no more fun for food safety inspections, that sort of thing. there's a new poll out by pew and "usa today" that suggests the white house may have the upper hand here winning this argument it is the gop to blame. 31% of those polled said they would blame president obama if these forced spending cuts go through. 49% would blame republicans in congress and only about 11% would blame both sides, frederica. >> and we have heard a bit about what agencies would be hit, such as transportation, even defense. are there any departments or agencies that might be exem
, senator john mccain is alleging a massive cover-up on the deadly attack on the u.s. consulate in benghazi, libya. >> so it's the state department's fault? who would you blame? who is responsible then? i've always had to keep my eye on her... but, i didn't always watch out for myself. with so much noise about health care... i tuned it all out. with unitedhealthcare, i get information that matters... my individual health profile. not random statistics. they even reward me for addressing my health risks. so i'm doing fine... but she's still going to give me a heart attack. we're more than 78,000 people looking out for more than 70 million americans. that's health in numbers. unitedhealthcare.

mccain. we've talked about john mccain and chuck hagel. once very close friends. mccain during the chuck hagel confirmation hearing was one of the most poignant, maybe ted cruise was the most poignant, but one of the most pointed critics of haling. mccain not putting his name to that letter. it's -- this seems like a foregone conclusion here in that this is much more for the public record and for history's sake why this letter was sent. >> and one more thing. before we leave, hagel, is this whole stir yesterday where. >> did you take money from the friends of hamas? >> it's lake-effect like this was a star claim we are bsh it got some legs, and it was all about theater. when you had all those senators, you know, people like cruise questioning him, talking about the friends of hamas, i mean, they were out for blood when it came to hagel and how to make a design in some ways. >> without even checking factual basis for their questions. >> no. >> you can ask anything and create a soundbyte, and people pick it up in social media, and it's off and running. >> there was some degree of
you have senator john mccain scolding you, when senator john mccain has been one person who has been after chuck hagel on his own, then you know you have gone too far. rubio was flawless last week. he took a mistake, which looked like the mistake of a water bottle, and turned it into a plus, like few politicians have ever done. maybe like bill clinton we went on, i think, one of the late night talk shows to make fun of johnny carson. john where i carson. s thank you. >> well, rubio so far has just about done everything right, and if one of the big players in the emgregs debate, working with the other side, and has shown that aside from that state of the union response, he picks himself up and moves right on and is making his foreign trip. thank you very much. margaret, good to see you. chris, of course, our daily fix. connecticut lawmakers, meanwhile, are moving very swiftly on new laws at the state level to combat gun violence inspect response to the newtown massacre. vice president biden was there yesterday to urge them on. >> the reflection of what the standing assumption is in am
to light and john mccain, even though he think hagel is not qualified, senate should confirm him because of reasonable amount of time for questions to be asked. >> harris: what is the white house saying about this whole episode so far for the hagel nomination? >> president said in a google appearance that much of the talk about benz, many questions were asked about that, benghazi. congress is running out of questions. the nomination of chuck hagel to be defense secretary and john brennan to head the c.i.a. are both hanging in the balance. the chief of staff says that is grave concern. >> between john brennan as c.i.a. director and chuck hagel as secretary of defense. we want make sure we have our guys working. we don't want something missed because of a hangup in washington. >> reporter: another vote on hagel is expected after congress returns. >> hagel is all but confirmed, how will it impacted his ability to be an effective leader. do not miss an all new fox news sunday, that is tonight when chris wallace sits down with lindsay graham, that is coming up at 6:00 p.m. eastern. >> kelly:
, that's the practical effect of what we see here today. >> let's take a listen to what senator john mccain said about the issues that republicans have about chuck hagel. >> to be honest with you, neil, it goes back to there is a lot of ill will toward senator hagel, because when he was a republican, he attacked president bush, mercilessly at one point said he was the worst president since herbert hoover, said that the surge was the worst blunder since the vietnam war, which is nonsense, and was very anti his own party and people. people don't forget that. you can disagree, but if you are disagreeab disagreeable, people don't forget that. >> what is the gop strategy here? >> they creating more bad pr for the people. do people really think he won't be confirmed? >> republicans are dragging their feet, not because they don't think he will be confirmed. they don't like his views on israel and iran. many of them were not fond of him. very critical of the bush administration and of the surge in iraq. one of the situations where he will eventually be confirmed. in the meantime, i don't know if it

week. they're taking a ten-day recess. sounds like a good gig. senator john mccain, one of hagel's most outspoken critics pushed back against suggestions that his opposition was designed to settle old scores. >> is that to say, senator, it's pay back time for chuck hagel? that's what this process has amounted to? >> of course not. 99% of it is to do with the positions that senator hagel has taken. p the position hes he's taken on some issues are not only out of the mainstream but to the far left. when we return, i'm sure chuck hagel will have enough votes to be confirmed. other senators have reasonable questions, i mean reasonable. >> but you're not a yes vote for your old friend? >> no. i don't believe he is qualified. but i don't believe that we should hold up his nomination any further. >> safe to say hagel and mccain families won't be sharing a presidents' day picnic today. officials at the white house are raising concerns that the lag in seating the president's cabinet picks could hurt the country. >> between john brennan and chuck hagel we want to make sure we have those guys sitt
, if they think, well, we don't have the votes. we'll give some more information to senator john mccain and lindsey graham. it is also interesting to note, jon, lindsey graham is someone who supported obama supreme court nominees. he clearly is opposing hagel here. jon: primarily what a lot of these senators want is information on a number of fronts, especially on the benghazi attack. what happened, how muc did the white house know, how involved was the president? that's what they're looking for, right? >> yeah, that is what they're looking for. they did ask some questions of hillary clinton about what she said to the president. their talks that night. they want more information as far as what, what was happening that night as these reports were coming in that christopher stevens and others were in danger. what was the white house doing? they want more details on it. until they get those details senator john mccain said looks like he would support the filibuster. earlier in the week he was saying, suggesting he wouldn't. but he wants more answers. until he gets the answers looks like ha
and you know, john mccain is actually the perfect example of why it is about the man himself, and that is he said last night after he had kind of given lots of different explanations, all of them i think are credible from his point of view, that the real fundamental thing that has bothered most of hagel's fellow republicans here, former colleagues here, is the way that he defied his party, defied his president, then george w. bush, on iraq, and that really did not sit well with many republicans here, and they remember that. it's a whole bunch of other issues but that at its core is the fundamental problem. >> so rich, i'll ask you as a republican strategy, are the concerns over chuck hagel serious enough to filibuster and block confirmation? that's the first time this has before happened in the history of u.s. politics. >> well, everybody says that, but that would get two thumbs up in the political fact check so john bolten was blocked and the ambassador to the u.n. was a cabinet level slot. the republicans i think dana have said that they'll probably let this thing go after
john mccain,. jenna: roy blunt, they have said that they would not sign onto a filibuster before but now they are being swayed by opponents of hagel, saying you need to stick with us. bill: reid is talk pweugt i. don't know italking about it. our producer on scene is saying reid is saying this is not h it's not football we are trying to confirm a secretary of defense. then he goes onto say this it's shocking my colleagues would leave the country without a secretary of defense. just reading this. bret, cabinet level nominees rarely require 60 votes to overcome a threatened filibuster. >> reporter: it's only happened three times. bill: what it says here is two in history so far have been required to clear a cloture vote of 60 votes. it's rare. >> reporter: very rare. i don't think it's happened ever for secretary of defense. i'll have to check that. it's very rare. and senator reid is on the floor berating republicans for doing this. yet u know, opponents say there are a number of substantive reasons they are doing it, and so you're going to have this back and forth. will there be
by the tea party. >> see what they did to john mccain. >> stephanie: laura ingraham asked him, do you think the president would repeal the second amendment. and he said i don't think there's any question about it. he said once -- >> democrats have kind of sucked on this issue since the '90s. >> stephanie: he said universal background checks are the beginning of the end. 90% of americans are for background checks. >> exactly, including gun owners. wayne lapierre doesn't speak for these people. he speaks for the manufacturers, the only people to profit since newtown. this is why lindsay graham has been going after chuck hagel, not because he has any moral core beliefs about chuck hagel being bad. lindsay graham is doing this because he knows the tea party dispieses him. >> these people do know the president can't just strike something down in the constitution. >> stephanie: i know. jeff in iowa writes steph back in the '90s the nra supported background checks and then the brady law was passed and the gun industry complained about slumping gun sales so the nra decided t
is scheduled for friday when they try to get the votes necessary to move the process forward. john mccain backed away from the pledge not to filibuster hagel's nod. he says he is waiting to see if the obama administration responds to calls to offer up more details about the deadly attack on the u.s. consulate in benghazi. >>> leon panetta minced few words but what is most likely the last press briefing on the job. with the threat of a march 1st sequester looming, he lashed out at congress. he thinks they could be crippling with price cuts. >> oftentimes i feel luke i don't have a full partnership with my former colleagues on the hill in trying to do what's right for this country. we need to find solutions. we can't just sit here and. [ beep ] we can't just sit here and complain. we can't just sit here and blame others. we can't just sit here and point fen finger at each other. we have to solve problems that we're facing. this country is facing real threats in the world. we can't do this alone. we've got to do this with a full partnership of the congress in both houses of the congress. >>
, john mccain's changing his tune. we praised him yesterday. so he had to reverse course, i guess. so now he's talking about possibly delaying chuck hagel's nomination. and also wayne lapierre. this is very important. because if you look at the profiles of all the people that committed these mass murders in newtown and aurora and across -- virginia tech, they are all hispanic drug gang leaders. and that's exactly what wayne lapierre said in an op-ed that americans need to buy guns because those latin americans are coming to america, and they're going to kill you people. this is who a lot of republicans in congress are thinking about falling off -- don't do it. don't hurt our party anymore. let wayne lapierre go wherever he wants to go. he's going to destroy the party. we're going to talk about the crazy op-ed has horrible for our party's image, horrible for the conservative movement's image, goes against everything ronald reagan stood for. we'll talk about that in a minute. first, breaking news. this is bizarre. the feel-good story of the olympic games involved in possibly murder. >> this
